  • salt & pepper

  • 1 large egg

  • 2 tablespoons plain flour

  • oil ( for frying)

  • 2 slices whole wheat bread ( cut in round shapes)

  • 1 tomatoes

  • 1 red onion


Peel the carrots, grate them coarsely and set them aside.Peel and roughly chop the garlic.Drain and rinse the chickpeas and put them into a food processor with the garlic, ground spices, salt and pepper. Slightly process to obtain a rough paste then add the carrot, egg, and flour and process briefly until evenly mixed but slightly rugged.
